Aiken County investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire Thursday night at the New Ellenton magistrate office.

Assistant Fire Chief Ricky Foster with the New Ellenton Fire Department said the fire occurred about 11 p.m. and was confined mainly to the attic. Fire fighters were able to get the blaze under control before any files and records were destroyed.

“There’s not really any damage to the interior structure just the roof,” he said.
